This is a collection of short stories by Philip K. Dick, ranging from horror to science fiction. In the Dutch collection I have (Bruna, 1968) some stories are missing when compared to the 1955 edition. I loved reading this collection, all stories were pretty good. I especially liked “Second Variety” about a war between the US and Russia that has destroyed the world and is now fought with robots (from the US side) that kill humans. As usual with short stories, I found them too short. These stories were good enough to be longer, to know more about the subjects and what happens next. I know that this is also the power of a good short story, but still. Anyway, a good solid collection of classic science fiction and horror, four out of five stars.
